So. here is a list of stuff that has happened, is happening, or will happen:
that's the basic idea. it's still a work in progress of course, and I'm sure I'll change it a lot as I go, but that's the general idea.
I'm thinking a winter wedding would be nice. but summer or spring or fall would be fine too.
i used to be able to, but not anymore. i have a retainer glued to the bottom of my teeth where my tongue is supposed to go in order to be able to whistle. so every once in a while I can get a "kinda-whistle." but most of the time it's a no.
I'm having a fundraiser at my other blog. It's just starting and I don't have a lot of stuff up there yet, but I'm working on putting more on there.
Please visit it and consider donating or purchasing something. All the money except cost of materials goes to stopping abortion.
I got a job.
I'm teaching pre-pointe at a local Christian dance studio! They don't have any girls en pointe right now, but I'm developing a curriculum to put them on. I'm so. freaking. excited.
I love teaching ballet.
Thank you God!!
Racism will never go away until we stop talking about it.
Now that's not to say that we should forget our history. But if we continue to make a big deal over what happened so many years ago, and continue to practically worship the people who gave their lives to change it, we will never move on. And until we can move on, the hate and anger from our ancestors still lives in us.
You're free now. Get over it.
This is not meant to offend anyone who is black or is related to someone who is black (or however you like your skin color referred too). I'm just saying… if we had a white history day, we'd never hear the end of it. why is that, do you think?
Like I said. get over it.
I'm being both good and bad this morning.
these are the good things I did:
these are the bad things I did this morning:
So yeah. The good outnumbers the bad, but we don't follow utilitarianism here.
at least I think that's the word.
I'm eventually going to make a dictionary. It will contain words I often forget the meaning of and have to relearn the meaning every semester, new important things I've discovered, and words I made up that I don't want to forget.
And I'll make it on InDesign. Since I paid three hundred dollars for the program, there is no reason I shouldn't' use that thing for EVERYTHING.
John Green and his writer friends decided that if you add "In your pants" to the end of any book title, it becomes a lot funnier.
The best titles for IN YOUR PANTS jokes:

more like "where's emily?"
yes, the truth is out. I call myself emily on this blog. it's not my real name. long story there ;)
Back at school. It feels good to be back. Sis is moved in. I think she's still sleeping.
We left Thursday night at 10:30pm and drove through the night. We got to school at 5:30. Record time! It was actually pretty fun. Once we got past midnight, it wasn't hard to stay awake. I like driving at night. It's a lot more relaxing. There's no traffic. There's no huge trucks (well, okay, there are some, but there's plenty of room on the road to pass them). And most of the time, the only headlights on the road are mine! So I don't get blinded!! yay!
Anyway, our ID cards worked at 5:30, so we went into the dorms. Sis and Jeff (more on him later) crashed in commons rooms. I slept in my own bed for the first time in almost a month. I fell asleep about 6am.
and woke up at 9:30am.
because I had forgotten to bring in my medicine and I didn't want to go into withdrawal.
so I got on some clothes and shoes and went out to the car and got my meds and by the time I'd taken them, I was awake (it was cold outside) so I just started unpacking and cleaning and stuff.
we were busy until 6:30pm, when I finally died. I was organizing my yarn (it's still a mess, but it's better) but I just crashed. so I called John for a few minutes, and went to bed at 7.
now im up and I need to go to walmart and get food so I can eat something besides chocolate and doughnuts for breakfast.
okay so: Jeff. Jeff is Sis's friend. She met him last Christmas. I was at college last year, and she was lonely. She met two guys: Jeff, and Blake. the relationship between them was a young adult novel, and one day I'm going to write about something like it and make a lot of money.
anyway. Jeff is a good friend of hers, and he just transferred up to school with us. so you'll be hearing more about him.
lastly: last night I had a dream that everyone thought I pulled a fire alarm in a building and they were going to arrest me. but it turned out I was really a super-hero detective, and I helped them solve the case. I used Jesus-power. (no seriously: my ID said "Christ appointed detective with the Power of God.") anyway then these demons came to our house and I had to destroy them so they wouldn't kill my family, and it was really hard, but I did it using wit and Jesus-power and a really cool gun that shot blue bullets and made things explode.
kinda wish I hadn't woken up.
Super-emily to the rescue!!!
a lot more happened, but these were my big highlights.
